GetBusinessesByIds REST Template

Gets one or more businesses.


Query Parameters


The ids value is a constant string that indicates that the POST method is getting businesses. The body of the request includes the list of identifiers of the businesses that you want to retrieve.

Request Components

The following specifies the HTTP method, supported content types, and base URI to use in your request.

    To use JSON, the following apply:

    • Your request URL must include the “format=json” query string.

    • For enumeration types, the value in the response is set to a numeric value instead of to the value name defined in the value set. For example, if the form of payment that the business accepts is Visa, the value of the Payment array element will be set to 5 instead of to Visa.

    • All enumerations are zero-based, and increment by 1.

    • The key names that you use for the JSON members are the same as the elements of the XML objects shown in the examples below.
